The last night of summer is only the beginning.

Skye wants to to meet the boy who will change her life forever. Seth feels their instant connection the second he sees her. When Seth starts talking to Skye at the last beach party of the summer, it's obvious to both of them that this is something real. But when Seth leaves for college before they exchange contact info, Skye wonders if he felt the same way she did-and if she will ever see him again. Even if they find their wat back to each other, can they make a long-distance relationship work despite trust issues, ex drama, and some serious background differences? (Summary from Goodreads)

Aww! Doesn't this sound like a sweet love story? Can't wait to read it--a love story is always fun to throw in the mix with action-adventure and fantasy novels.

Anna Van Housen is thirteen the first time she breaks her mother out of jail. By sixteen she's street smart and savvy, assisting her mother, the renowned medium Marguerite Van Housen, in her stage show and seances, and easily navigating the underground world of magicians, mediums and mentalists in 1920's New York City. Handcuffs and sleight of hand illusions have never been much of a challenge for Anna. The real trick is keeping her true gifts secret from her opportunistic mother, who will stop at nothing to gain her ambition of becoming the most famous medium who ever lived. But when a strange, serious young man moves into the flat downstairs, introducing her to a secret society that studies people with gifts like hers, he threatens to reveal the secrets Anna has fought so hard to keep, forcing her to face the truth about her past. Could the stories her mother has told her really be true? Could she really be the illegitimate daughter of the greatest magician of all? (Summary from Goodreads)

Oh this sounds SO GOOD! MYSTERY, MAGICK, INTRIGUE, 1920'S NEW YORK CITY, all of it means I'm in!! Are you?

What are you waiting on this week?
